Hilliard was on a two-way contract with the Spurs last season, so he only saw action in 14 games at the NBA level. Most of his campaign was spent with the team's G-League affiliate, where he averaged an impressive 20.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.1 steals across 36 games. Considering how well he looked in the minors, the Spurs are giving him a qualifying offer, which means they can match any offer he receives as a free agent. At this point, it's unclear if Hilliard would come back as a two-way player once again or if the Spurs would elevate him to a regular contract.
Hilliard added 22 points (7-11 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block during Friday's 114-115 killing of the visiting Big Horns.
This was the 19th game in which Hilliard has made it past the 20-point mark, as he also recorded a tally in every major statistical category. The 24-year-old from Villanova is a dynamic offensive player, as he currently sits in the top-10 for scoring in the G League with 21.2 points per game for Austin.
Hilliard recorded 31 points (11-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five assists, one rebound and one steal during Wednesday's 134-123 loss at Texas.
In his first game in the G-League since Jan. 20, the third year player from Villanova picked up right were he left off and amassed the 31-point mark. Hilliard is the Austin Spurs' leading scorer this season with 21.8 points per game and he's proven that whenever he is with the team, he will contribute majorly.
Hilliard played five minutes and dished one assist in Saturday's 120-111 loss to the Jazz.
Two-way contract player Hilliard has now appeared in six of San Antonio's last seven games, averaging 1.3 points, 0.3 rebounds and 0.3 assists over 4.5 minutes per contest. He's providing emergency depth at the wing positions.
Hilliard spent his first two seasons in Detroit and is coming off a 2016-17 campaign where he averaged just 3.3 points across 9.8 minutes in 39 games. In signing a two-way contract with the Spurs, Hilliard will develop with the team's G-League affiliate for the majority of the upcoming season, but can spend up to 45 days with the Spurs at the NBA level as well. That allows him to work closely with the organization, while providing some emergency relief if injuries occur. His status as a two-way player keeps him off the fantasy radar.
